Barca are unbeaten in their last two matches at home in Liga having registered two consecutive wins against Celta Vigo and Real Mallorca at Camp Nou.
“Today we secured second place in La Liga. For me, we achieved this season’s goals by qualifying for the Champions League and the Spanish Super Cup," Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez said after their draw with Getafe.
 “We haven’t been able to compete with Real Madrid in La Liga. We haven’t been able to compete in the rest of the competitions… With this second place finish, we have saved a campaign that could have been much worse.
“Today’s match was complicated, and the draw helped both teams. We had heard that Sevilla drew against Atlético and then the players didn’t know what to do.”

The last league meeting between Barcelona and Villarreal was on 27  November 2021.
